DESCRIPTION



This bust presents a vigorously-defined individual with richly-curled hair and beard, robed in a habitwith a cloak over his left shoulder and a clasp-like jewel on his chest, enclosing a gem. One might hypothetically assign a date in the 1490s for this unpublished sculpture, and its artistic quality, originality and powerful handling suggest a fully autograph work by Tommaso Rodari.
